Drake has released major party-starter anthems like “Hotline Bling” and Rihanna’s “Work,” but he proved Tuesday that he’s just as talented performing stripped down covers of folk classics. The rapper sings parts of the Jackson Browne and Nico song “These Days” on a new EP from Tumblr-launched rap star Babeo Baggins called Love Songs For Tough Guys.

“Drake has been my hero since I was 14 and it’s such an honor to be able to connect with him musically, truly blessed and so thankful,” Baggins said in a tweet.

Baggins decided to release the Drake-featured track, called “Things I Forgot To Do,” after an unfinished version was leaked earlier. “The Internet leaked a song been working on with drake for over a year but if you want to hear the finished one,” Baggins tweeted, linking to the final version of the song.

“These days is my favorite song in the universe which explains the cover. I’ve had this for a long time and was trying to make it perfect,” Baggins went on to say.

Alongside “Things I Forgot To Do,” Love Songs For Tough Guys includes two more covers: one of Lykke Li‘s “Stay With Me” and one of Patsy Cline‘s “Used To Be.”
